Peter Lake released a new track ‘Stones’
Canadian-born, New York City-based singer-songwriter Peter Lake loves his anonymity. In a time when privacy is becoming increasingly rare, Peter is convinced that his ability to make music is safeguarded by his secrecy and by collaborating with unconventional partners in an effort to get around the limitations of conventional record deals, which frequently view recorded music as a way to promote tours. Peter is a unique artist who will only perform live shows using a web-based platform. This will allow him to devote all of his time to creating new, original music that spans all genres. During this time, Peter has compiled one of the biggest singer-songwriter catalogs in the business. David Bowie, Motown, Neil Young, Max Martin, and Drake are some of his musical influences. It’s not surprising that his music is difficult to categorize because it frequently switches between (and combines) House beats, gritty guitar riffs, and “traditional chants and natural sounds.” We discovered in our conversations with the artist that humility is not something that comes easily. The intense sincerity with which he describes his plans, however, makes it difficult to label his opinions as haughty.
He gave the following response when asked what his ambitions were: “My ambition is to wake up every day and make music, and one day through that process write and perform what will later be seen as the greatest song in history, a song that will define humankind for centuries.” Peter Lake, we wish you success in your endeavor!
This week’s release of “Stones” was met with silence. Lake has been reduced to obscurity because he won’t perform, interact with his fans, or show his face.
This release’s author has a non-PR background at the artist’s request.
Facts about Mr. Lake include his seven-year release schedule, 30+ million streams on YouTube and Spotify in the past 18 months, and his reluctance to even make a phone call. After listening to Stones while dozing off and deciding that it was “annoying” to have to play his own song by opening a file, Lake reportedly released it. As with his other releases, the song was abruptly released as a result of this, though more than one person’s relaxing Sunday was disrupted by the rush to issue a press release.
The song, which was mastered by triple Grammy winner Emily Lazar, is a catchy tune that, like most of Lake’s other songs, defies easy categorization into one genre or style. The following account from Mr. Lake was given to the author of this press release when asked about the song’s genesis: My first love is the subject of this song. It follows the narrative arc that many of us have known.
